Co-op Experience Published in Northeastern News

On April 3, 2013, an article was published in the Northeastern News about my recent co-op experience at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital. The article covers the RVU Tracker application I developed there which measures doctor productivity and incentivizes efficient billing practices and helps tracks the types of shifts doctors work.

The experience I gained working at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, working alongside the Hospitalist Service administrator, Kimberely Reynolds and Dr. Anuj Dalal, MD,┬áhas been tremendously valuable. It was the first time I had designed, written, and released my own software application. The tool is in use today to measure the performance and patient interactions of over 100 doctors and is having a significant impact on the fiscal budget of the Hospitalist group. All this responsibility granted to an intern goes a long way to vouch for Northeastern’s unique and world-renowned co-op program. If it were not for the great team at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital that I worked with, this also would not have been possible.
